The Chele La Nature Trek is a trekking route in Bhutan, with the medium level of the trek. First-time trekkers can also complete this trek. The trekkers trek through the primula and rhododendron trail. You can already imagine how very beautiful and pleasant the route can be. The views are spectacular and eye-catching in every aspect. Not to mention, we provide a crew of specialized and experienced staff to assist you along the way.

Nature, it is essential to becoming part of its silence. Trekking gives nature admirer such an opportunity, to feel the power and unparalleled beauty. Not only that it also gives them a sanctity of the majestic Himalayas. If you are planning to go trekking in Bhutan you should be reasonably fit. And also bring along some basic trekking gear such as trekking shoes, waterproof clothes, rucksacks, etc. with you.

For your information, Bhutan being a small country has an International Airport in Paro. Another reason for having an airport in Paro instead of the capital city Thimpu is because of the altitude. Thimpu is at a higher altitude than Paro. Thus, it might be difficult to take-off and land at higher altitudes.

Shortly after you land at Paro, you go sightseeing. The next day you drive to Chonana followed by Jebkarpo, Lower Mingula, Thong, Thimpu, Punakha or Wangdiphodrang, and finally back to Paro. Lastly, you take a connecting flight back to your home.

In conclusion, you will see many monasteries on your trekking route. Along with that, you will see the stunning landscapes, lush green forest, and a peaceful environment in every village and town in Bhutan.

(Note: Nepal is the easiest gateway to enter Bhutan, as it runs a couple of regular flights on a daily basis so; if you are planning to explore Bhutan, you can extend your trip and enjoy a couple of days by exploring Nepal too.)
